Petroleum jelly has been around for years and most of us have used petroleum jelly at some point to moisturise our skin. But it is not just an ordinary skin cream, there are several other interesting ways you can use petroleum jelly in your beauty routine. We have listed down a few. Lengthens eyelashes: Have you ever wished your eyelashes were longer? Try coating them with petroleum jelly and leave it overnight. Many people have found that doing this makes eyelashes longer and thicker over time. Taming the frizz: Sometimes unwanted and frizzy strands can ruin your super straight hairdo.
So, apply a little petroleum jelly on the frizz to tame it. Don’t go overboard or you will end up with greasy hair. Makes fragrance last longer: Apply a little petroleum jelly on your wrist and neck before your spray it with perfume. This is a proven trick to make the fragrance last longer. Chafed nose healer: Due to cold and flu, the area around your nose tends to get chafed and it could get very uncomfortable. Dab a little petroleum jelly around that area and it will do the trick. Protects skin from hair dye: When you apply hair dye at home, it sometimes lands up on your skin and stains it.
This can be very annoying as these stains don’t vanish soon. Use petroleum jelly along your hairline and neck line before you apply the dye. This protects your skin from getting stained. Highlighter: Petroleum jelly can be applied on the top of your cheekbone to give you that highlighter effect. It makes your cheekbones appear radiant and shiny. You can also use it on your eyelids before you put on your eye shadow to give you that wet eye make up look.
